Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everybody at Labman

Robert Hodgson Labman News


The end of the 2015 is nearly upon us and we can reflect on what has been a busy and successful year for Labman.

We have seen the completion of many prestigious projects including; 2 vial filling systems for UK companies to increase production rate, a high throughput automated seed dispensing system for ABRC @ Ohio State University and a system for a world leading petroleum company which dilutes samples to specified oil dilution factors.

We had fun taking Labman ‘out on the road’ attending numerous trade shows, careers and engineering fairs and successfully exhibited at Aquatech in Amsterdam and China Coat in Shanghai, while also managing to soak up a little local culture on the way!

This year saw the end of our three year association with Team RBR/Labman Racing. Following amazing achievements on the race track it is now time for Gerry and Richy to hang up their racing leathers (well…..for the time being!). We wish them every success in their future adventures!

So, what does 2016 have in store for us?

We are hoping to have the plans finalised and work underway on the expansion of our premises in Seamer which will see our building double in size.

Our order book is already looking very healthy with many exciting projects to get our teeth into.

Labman will be out and about again with visits to conferences, exhibitions and trade fairs including in April the American Coatings Show, Indianapolis. Come down and say hello!

All in all it looks like 2016 is going to be a busy one!

Labman would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2016.
